It’s rivalry weekend, folks.

No one does it — or dominates HS lacrosse — like the tristate, and that fact will be on display for all to see today.

Two of the rivalry meetings — the Woodstick Classic and Murphy Cup — are staples not just in the NY/NJ/CT hotspot, but in entire the high school lacrosse galaxy.

For some notes and background on the Woodstick Classic and Murphy Cup, including an interesting Yorktown and Lakeland/Panas family connection surrounding the game, be sure to check this report on Lacrosse Insider.

Before we give the rundown (we are fond of that imitated, but never duplicated, title that we debuted first here in 2009) on today’s top games, here’s a quick look back to a noteworthy Friday in the tristate.

* In Suffolk (NY), Northport dealt Connetquot its first setback, defeating the T-Birds 9-8. Both teams are now 12-1, and there are no longer any unbeaten teams in Section 11.

* Over in Nassau (NY), Massapequa beat East Meadow 17-4, celebrating Senior Day with its 31st straight win.

* Smithtown East marked its Senior Day by pulling away to rout West Islip 17-5. There was a running clock for much of the second half — a scenario few could have envisioned just a couple of years ago.

Now, here’s the rundown for a stacked Saturday:

Woodstick Classic: Garden City (NY) at Manhasset (NY), 7:30 p.m.
